i931x

This radio exceeds my expectations, its a classic boom box that has nice tech upgrades from the previous 1980's models. I think you have to have been a teen in the mid to late 80's to really appreciate and get that feeling of nostalgia. The late 80's signifies the end of the boom box era in which you saw people walking down the street blasting a loud radio. It was about how loud you could have it and how much watts your radio had. Most every manufacturer embellished the actual specs but who cared, it was just bragging rights... GREAT RADIO.

HUGE BOOOOOM BOX

Ok, so this is a really cool looking boom box, it takes two hands to carry it, thats how big & bulky it is. i get get so many complements from this huge old skool looking boom box. Its a major head turner, no doubt on that part. As for the looks they got that right 100%, the price was fair, but what kills me is the sound quality, it's garbage, it is so weak, my cell plays louder music than this thing, the volume knob sucks, you have to spin it over and over to get volume levels right, the plastic graphics are already peeling off, and one time use out side melted the stickers/graphics off, so very cheaply made, those big speakers dont even produce any bass like you would think, pure vocal out of this machine, very disappointed with sound & durability. I don't know how long this thing will last. Great for show, a real attention getter that's all its good for. I wouldn't buy another, or recommend to another person.

The lasonic blaster is a great ipod/iphone dock that is reminiscent of the old shoulder carrying boombox of the 80's. It has been a huge hit and produces a better than average sound.

This unit looks great, but it is really very cheaply made. My iphone didn't fit into the docking port, the FM radio is of poor quality. The whole thing is junk!

This is awesome. I get endless compliments on its nifty design and for the price it gets REALLY loud and clear. Ive taken it to the park and also just used it for music in my room. This thing rocks. Not the most portable because it's a tad heavy but it is possible to carry with care.

This thing is pretty sweet!!! I saw it (or something EXACTLY like it) on the Lonely Island music video. Which is hella funny, but i needed it. Ive never seen anything like it. Looks Retro, which is HOTTT right now. Its got the iPod dock, FM tuner, its portable and for not having a designated sub, it has pretty good range. Ive got the JVC MX-GT80 with the Giga Tube in my garage and obviously this beats harder, but i cant take it anywhere. I would never call it portable either. This Lasonic answered my prayers. Thank you lonely island... and Sonic too haha!!!

This unit is very impressive, visually. In reality, it is garbage. Poorly constructed. Poor FM tuner. Volume knob sticks and the volume was going up AND down even though the knob was being turned in one direction. I tried Lasonic and I would not recommend this brand for anything.
